otoh, this might be interesting for us folks who need to justify using 
python instead of java.

Python, of course, being the unknown language nobody uses and nobody 
knows and for we can hire nobody as consultants, and java being the 
language of choice for any enterprise level system, where there are 
loads of people available that know java, even our students (the fact 
that it takes much more time to develop in java, is of course propaganda 
from the evil side - we can always hire consultants)

(that was an attempt at being sarcastic, if you didn't knotice)

Then again, it might be outside of the scope of the conference...
